Cisco helps expand Sasktel’s advanced services

Canadian telecommunications operator Sasktel has indicated its plan to drive the expansion of its advanced services, including its MAX IP TV offering, by utilizing Cisco's CRS-1 platform.

By CBR Staff Writer

The Cisco CRS-1 is the first carrier-class routing system designed to scale up to 92 terabits per second, simplifying networks while maximizing investment protection for customers.

Cisco CRS-1’s advanced features and functions include continuous operation, IP service flexibility, scalability, multicast capability for digital broadcast video and seamless optical integration. These features are required to support advanced services such as digital broadcast video.

The CRS-1 also provides SaskTel with Cisco I-Flex shared port adapters utilizing an extensible design that enables service prioritization for voice, video and data services for intelligent, flexible and highly secure networking. These modular port adapters and programmable interface processors, which are interchangeable across Cisco carrier routing platforms, help service providers protect network investments and reduce total cost of ownership.

Kym Wittal, CTO, SaskTel said, As we continue development and rapid deployment of advanced services to our growing customer base, we look for technologies that will not only facilitate, but actually help us drive that growth.
